This two-day intermediate level course provides an in-depth look at the evaluation and treatment of patients with Parkinsons disease. The most current evidence-based and advanced concepts in rehabilitation for the effective management of Parkinsons disease will be thoroughly discussed. This course enables the clinician to identify impairments and functional limitations of patients with Parkinsons disease and then implement an effective treatment plan to achieve optimal outcomes. An overview of common medications, surgical procedures and the effects they can have on rehabilitation are discussed in an interactive format. The scientific and clinical rationale for assessment and treatment strategies are thoroughly discussed. The interactive laboratory sessions throughout day two will enhance the information learned on integrative and functional treatment techniques. The techniques can be immediately applied to the clinical setting to promote positive treatment outcomes. The case studies presented enable the clinician to perform effective evaluations and to develop appropriate rehabilitation programs. Proper documentation and goal-writing guidelines are also discussed. The clinician who attends this interactive seminar will gain knowledge that can immediately be applied in the clinical setting and will have the information that is needed to develop comprehensive evaluations and treatment programs for people with Parkinsons disease.
My focus is on improving daily function through innovative yet effective, safe, and evidence-based treatments.More Instructor Info
